Sadly, the government wouldn't have ever needed to do that if they hadn't counterfeited money (which is more widely referred to as inflation).
In fact, price controls after World War II created the Health Care problem because employers offered health insurance as a benefit to get around the maximum price (usually called maximum wage).

That would be a disaster.
